Motorsport Australia is saddened to learn of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Members of the global motorsport community have collectively expressed their sympathies, including FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem.

“It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland," said Sulayem.

"The Queen was undoubtedly one of the most respected heads of state ever to have lived, and I send my condolences, and those of the entire FIA community, to the Royal Family and all of the citizens of The United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.

"Motorsport, and especially Formula 1, has its heart in the United Kingdom, and the Royal Family has over the years given great support and patronage to the sport. For this we thank them, and those events taking place around the world this weekend will undoubtedly be undertaken in honour of her Majesty."

On behalf of its members, Motorsport Australia sends sympathies and deepest condolences to His Majesty King Charles III, The Queen Consort and all members of the Royal Family.
